2018 In-house Recruitment Awards

On the evening of the 28th November 2018, the industry’s finest in-house recruiters gathered at the Westminster Park Plaza for the return of the In-house Recruitment Awards, with headline partner Lumesse. Currently in the seventh year, this year’s awards saw 24 category winners (see below for a full list), with more than 800 in attendance to celebrate their wins, making it our largest and most successful ceremony to date!

Our guests were treated to a delicious meal and incredible entertainment from the Afrikan Warriors dance group. Towards the end of their impressive act, the dancers got the crowd cheering as they invited a handful of participants to the stage to do the limbo. Judges, finalists, partners and even our very own Mark Lennox showed off their best moves, leaving the audience in tears.

The much-awaited award ceremony followed and this year, as the standard of our entries has been so high, we decided to offer recognition to our bronze and silver medalists as well. Once the happy winners picked up their coveted prize, the celebrations kicked off as our guests filled the dancefloor to party the night away.

We also held a silent auction throughout the night, in support of Chasing Connor’s Cure – a small charity on a mission to end Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. Our guests had the chance to choose from a selection of fantastic prizes (including tickets to the Monaco Grand Prix and a South African Safari) with all proceeds going towards finding a cure for this fatal genetic disease.

We’d like to extend a huge thank you to all of our event partners, without whom, the evening would not have been possible! We’d also like to congratulate all our finalists on the amazing work they have done throughout the year and, of course, all our winners! As the number of entries grows every year, we are truly humbled to see that the In-house Recruitment Awards has become a pillar event for the in-house recruitment industry.

If you were unable to attend, don’t worry, the official photos and video from the night will be available online soon, but in the meantime you can catch up on all the best snaps on Twitter using #IHRA18.
